Avid will be at AES 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center (September 29-October 1) to show off the latest features and capabilities of our award-winning  VENUE | S6L system. Not only will we have an S6L system on the main Avid Booth #303 in the exhibit hall, but we’ll have four S6L systems in Demo Room 507 to enable visitors to get hands-on with the system and explore all the latest features offered by the recent VENUE 5.3 software update. Avid has arranged for you to get a free Exhibits-Plus Badge for the show by registering here before September 27th and use promo code 141AES130.

Since its introduction 10 years go, VENUE has been one of the most trusted and requested live mixing systems in the world, and the new VENUE | S6L is a modular system that enables live sound professionals to take on the world’s most demanding tours and events with ease. Offering unprecedented processing capabilities—with over 300 processing channels—S6L delivers unrelenting performance and reliability through its advanced engine design and backs it up with modern touchscreen workflows and scalability to meet any challenge. Be sure to drop by and get a demo and discover why the world’s biggest tours and leading sound companies around the world are embracing the new VENUE flagship system.
